Newfoundland? Yes!!!

I had a conversation with a coin dealer last month, I told him I needed a Canadian 20 Cent piece for my type collection.  He showed me a Newfoundland 20 Cent piece and seemed slightly annoyed when I told him Newfoundland and Canada were two different countries until 1949.  

But that got me thinking.  I need to have a Newfoundland Type Set as well, so I am going to start one with the New Year.  Yay for Newfoundland, I am going to learn a lot about you.

You are correct about Newfoundland being independent prior to 1949. Never underestimate a numismatist.

I wish Dansco made a Newfoundland type album.  😕

Well, you taught me something.I didn't know that. That will make a nice set. Good luck.

And now the Province is named Newfoundland and Labrador.  By the time I finish my type set, I am going to want to visit Newfoundland, the Canadian maritime provinces have always intrigued me.

the Newfoundland Type collection has officially begun.  The type set consists of 20 coins, including the 2 Dollar Gold piece.  The Whitman Folder does not include the Gold coin, but that is OK, I will still buy it when the time comes.   so far I have 6 of the coins, with a 5 Cent and 10 Cent (George VI) piece on order from Ebay.  None of the coins is going to expensive, except the Gold piece, so I will buy two a month until the set is done.  I should be done by June ish with the basic type set.  Maybe I will be lucky and find one or two at ANA and PAN shows as well.  We'll see.

I think you will be able to find them at the ANA shows, they have plenty of dealers and opportunities available.

Maybe inc a 1949 Canada $1 that commemorates Newfoundland? This was always a fav coin

I have now found that one can have a complete type set of Canadian Provincial Coins, Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Nova Scotia, by getting only 28 coins.  The only coin selling for more than two hundred dollars is the Newfoundland 2 Dollar gold coin.  All the others can be obtained for less than 100, and in most cases, substantially less than 100 Dollars.  I think I am going to go for the whole enchilada.  That combined with my Canada Type Set will give me a good solid Canadian collection.
